It develops empathy, collaboration, and shared responsibility between students, teachers and the world around us, cultivating openness to possibilities and a sense of stewardship. Course content focuses on giving students an in-depth understanding of the subject at hand while providing them a context to work on themselves as emerging individuals.
Summerfield Waldorf School and Farm teaches students to be creative, critical thinkers with a strong moral compass, who are open and resilient, and can turn challenges into possibilities. This approach to learning integrates the arts with academic rigor, and experiential, hands-on activities. Students are provided with the opportunity to take risks, think imaginatively and embrace new opportunities with initiative, creativity, and resilience.
